STRING protein interaction network
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
SAY1Steryl acetyl hydrolase 1; Sterol deacetylase; component of the sterol acetylation/deacetylation cycle along with Atf2p; active both in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and in lipid droplets; integral membrane protein with active site in the ER lumen; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the ER (424 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Galactose/lactose metabolism regulatory protein GAL80; Transcriptional regulator involved in the repression of GAL genes; involved in the repression of GAL genes in the absence of galactose; inhibits transcriptional activation by Gal4p; inhibition relieved by Gal3p or Gal1p binding; To K.lactis GAL80
Monoglyceride lipase (MGL); functional ortholog of mammalian MGL, localizes to lipid particles and membranes, also member of the eukaryotic serine hydrolase family; Belongs to the AB hydrolase superfamily. Monoacylglycerol lipase family
Alcohol O-acetyltransferase 2; Alcohol acetyltransferase; may play a role in steroid detoxification; forms volatile esters during fermentation, which is important for brewing and winemaking
Uncharacterized globin-like protein YNL234W; Protein of unknown function with similarity to globins; has a functional heme-binding domain; mutant has aneuploidy tolerance; transcription induced by stress conditions; may be involved in glucose signaling or metabolism; regulated by Rgt1
Sterol binding protein involved in the export of acetylated sterols; secreted glycoprotein and member of the CAP protein superfamily (cysteine-rich secretory proteins (CRISP), antigen 5, and pathogenesis related 1 proteins); sterol export function is redundant with that of PRY2; may be involved in detoxification of hydrophobic compounds; PRY1 has a paralog, PRY2, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Lipid droplet hydrolase 1; Serine hydrolase; exhibits active esterase plus weak triacylglycerol lipase activities; proposed role in lipid homeostasis, regulating phospholipid and non-polar lipid levels and required for mobilization of LD-stored lipids; localizes to the lipid droplet (LD) surface; contains a classical serine containing catalytic triad (GxSxG motif)
Esterase that can function as an S-formylglutathione hydrolase; non-essential intracellular esterase; may be involved in the detoxification of formaldehyde, which can be metabolized to S-formylglutathione; similar to human esterase D
3-ketodihydrosphingosine reductase TSC10; 3-ketosphinganine reductase; catalyzes the second step in phytosphingosine synthesis; essential for growth in the absence of exogenous dihydrosphingosine or phytosphingosine; localized to lipid droplets; member of short chain dehydrogenase/reductase protein family
Phospholipase/carboxylesterase; Acyl-protein thioesterase responsible for depalmitoylation of Gpa1p; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to both the cytoplasm and nucleus and is induced in response to the DNA-damaging agent MMS; Belongs to the AB hydrolase superfamily. AB hydrolase 2 family
Uncharacterized protein YPR147C; Protein of unknown function; may have a role in lipid metabolism, based on localization to lipid droplets; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the cytoplasm and is induced in response to the DNA-damaging agent MMS
